> Sorry, not quite awake yet. Unless there is some medical reason to stop both at the same time, I would withdraw from the celexa first, using the klonopin to help with any potential problems. Then tackle the klonopin. If you withdraw from both at the same time and have problems you won't have any idea which drug is causing them. Again, please discuss these issues with your doctor before you do anything. Polytherapy creates interesting issues, doesn't it. Best of luck with your decision.

My reasoning for stopping both at once is this: Celexa is activating, K is not. if I just stop the Celexa wouldn't the k make me feel a little sluggish and perhaps depressed? then I would think I couldn't go off the Celexa when, in fact, it could be the K making me start to feel depressed. If I go off the K alone the Celexa would make me feel to anxious and I would think I needed the K when, in fact, it could be the Celexa causing the problems.

This could be very faulty thinking and I will discuss with pdoc at next appt. but you all have such widespread knowledge and understanding i wanted to run it by PB first. I wouldn't have made it through the last few years without PB! Thanks, Dr. Bob and all.
